Assassination Tango is a 2002 Argentine crime film directed by and starring Robert Duvall. It is a thriller based in the steamy side of Argentine tango. Other actors include Rubén Blades, Kathy Baker and Duvall's wife, Luciana Pedraza. Francis Ford Coppola was one of the executive producers; the entire film was shot in Argentina.

Quote from the rottentomatoes synopsis:

For Duvall, the making of Assassination Tango is the culmination of a long-held dream, combining two worlds he loves so much. In the tango, Duvall finds an amalgam of contradictions, which is what makes it so appealing and also parallels his character in the film. "Tango is sweetness. Some people call it sensual. Some call it sexual. Others would disagree because a mother can tango with her son, a father with his daughter. It's a very personal kind of thrust and a world that's very special."

Recently, I picked up a copy of "Assassination Tango" and viewed it again for the first time in seven years. I think I enjoyed it even more the second time around. Robert Duvall grabbed my attention in the opening scene and simply …
